A little gem ! !
Well not sure what to expect, especially as not a fan of silent films, and the fact that when they do have some music/other sound track are generally awful.
In this case though I thought the music ie solo piano was just wonderful ! And really added to the film.
For me a welcome change from the usual crap and the film was incredibly moody and surreal.
I'll bet Dali would love it too LOL.

A True Gem
Unlike many of the items I have reviewed, this is a short silent film. This is actually one of the finest silent films I have ever seen. I really enjoyed the dream-like special effects and the spooky atmosphere. If there is a plot, I think I missed it, but that doesn't matter, since it's the gorgeous array of images that is the reason to see this film. One could write a 10-page essay on the meaning of the facinating images in this short film.
Picture quality is pretty good for an "underground" silent film.
